    Please tell me it's decent… I loathe Win8 with a passion.

    They decided to skip 9 and go to 10 for a fresh start i believe…

    How do you like the touchscreen for editing photos? When I bought my Ideapad, I swore up and down that I would shame touchscreens because it just seemed like a silly idea if I wanted to have a clean screen to edit photos. But now that I'm making maps, I have decided that it might be nice if I actually had a touchscreen LOL.

    Anyways…. I hope Win10 is glitch free. Win8 sure isn't. I've tried upgrading to 8.1 and it didn't install correctly and I had to revert back =( I'd rather upgrade to something good than pay to downgrade to 7 just to have Windows stop supporting it soon (because despite the fact that I can talk about computers, I can't speak the language of computers) 🙂

    FWIW MS is cutting off enhancements for Win7, not security patches. I forget the roll-off for that, but it's a few years out yet. IMO worth getting Win7 and paying for the Win10 upgrade down the road if you can do it.

    Touchscreens though, I'm seriously considering a convertible or a Surface next time around, depending on how well that bank heist goes.

    Win7 support will be around for patches etc for many years from what I recall… 10 is interesting… I just got this laptop today so have not had time to try editing but the photoshop app is not awful and is touch enabled… I will report back after I use it some more… I am not too excited about this keyboard compared to my other Lenovo.. But back lighting is a nice feature.. Also I think the battery will be dead pretty fast.. Corei7 in an ultra book I cannot expect more than a couple hours on battery…

  12. I like 8 better i love 8s start menu

    WIndows 7 – end of mainstream support (enhancements) Jan 2015. Extended support (security patches) ends Jan 2020.

    2020…that is a huge amount of time…

    According to their FAQs normally would be two years after the second new version comes out – WIndows 10. So a 2015 release of Win10 would mean 2017. But I suspect they extended that after nobody started buying Win8 in droves. Plus, that big push to get corporate customers off XP and onto Win7 means a whole lot of people have, or are working on, rewriting huge swaths of code to make their programs work on Win7.

    yea if I were a computer person I would be able to work without mainstream support, but not as a non-computer-person.
